Null steering and beam steering are known well as anti-jamming methods in GPS anti-jamming system. Null steering gets a noise attenuation effect for the direction of jamming and beam steering earns additional gain synthesis for the direction of satellite signals. According to the research in the article for signal processing, it expresses that the N array antenna is effective for N-1 number of jamming signal by math public interest, however, the two algorithms analysis is not unknown for the operating condition of the realistic vehicle. In this paper, we modeled anti-jamming system using 4 and 7 array antenna and showed the two algorithms performance (PM, LCMV) when considering the number of antenna array, jammers and vehicle position (horizontal, vertical). In result, we showed that the case of vertical position of the vehicle which has large tilt angle for the relative position of satellites and jammers, has about 10 dB gain more in comparison with one of vertical position in spite of same JSR condition.
